Sports journalist Rob Parker on the latest ‘The Odd Couple’ podcast gave his arguments on why Los Angeles Lakers’ superstar LeBron James will never become the GOAT.
“He can’t be the GOAT. He lost six Finals. No other former NBA regular season MVP has lost as many Finals [as LeBron James]. It ain’t about how many times you go. It’s about wining. If it was just about going, we would talk about the Buffalo Bils. They went for four straight Super-Bowls. It ain’t about that, it ain’t about going,” Parker said.
“That [Miami] Heat was more talented than any other team that Jordan had. They had three players in the same exact draft Top 5. Three of the Top 5 players in the same roster. It weakened the East. And that team did nothing special. That’s what hurts LeBron’s legacy. They’ve won 2 out for 4 championships and lost to a lesser Dallas team. That’s why LeBron is looked upon the way he is. He underachieved,” he added.
